It began in Hamilton, Canada (1/20/99), at the Second International Congress on Knowledge and Innovation, sponsored by McMaster University.
The "Tour de Knowledge Monde" is a unique performance featuring experts from around the world interested in furthering the knowledge agenda of their companies, universities, government organizations and nations.
Launching an International Knowledge Concert Tour, Debra M. Amidon, President of ENTOVATION® International, Ltd., provided a featured banquet presentation entitled 'Tour de Knowledge Monde' as part of the annual business conference. Silvard Kool, an international concert pianist known for his original compositions, accompanied the showcase of global knowledge professionals featured on the Global Knowledge Leadership Map.
Amidon believes the movement is anything but U.S.- or European-centric. It is a worldwide phenomenon. The focus on knowledge and innovation is providing the fusion necessary.Canadian concerts have been sponsored by the Manitoba Quality Awards (Winnipeg) and in the United States at the LBJ Museum (Austin, Texas) and Georgetown University (Washington, DC). "The Tour du Knowledge Monde" was webcast live from the Skandia Futures Center (Vaxholm, Sweden) and most recently "Viaje al Mundo del Conocimiento" was featured at PDVSA (Caracas, Venezuela). Next plans are to bring the tour to Mexico City, Paris and Asia.
"A new economic world order is being shaped - one based upon knowledge, innovation, value-systems, customer success, and international collaboration - not competition. Harmony is at the heart of the Knowledge Economy."
Knowledge transformation is occurring at all economic levels and across every function, sector, and region of the world. Amidon issues the ENTOVATION® Challenge as a way to inspire individuals into action. "The Knowledge Economy is inside every one of us; so, it is our imperative to make a difference." She traces her journey begun in 1987 on the ENTOVATION® Timeline to harness the intellectual capital of the nation.
Amidon states: "What was an initiative in international competition has become a global phenomenon of collaboration creating synergies between industrialized and developing nations never before thought possible. And, it is only the beginning."
"The real frontiers are within us as we learn to appreciate and value differences - unique differences - and learn that as we become energized as individuals, our Knowledge Economy will gain energy in new ways."
